KING RICHARD’S FAIRE INVITES YOU TO ESCAPE REALITY
COME TO THE FAIRE
King Richard’s Faire is New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance Faire. The 2015 season is to run September 5 through October 25, 2015 on weekends and Monday holidays.
Tucked away on 80 acres of enchanted forest off Rt. 58 in Carver, Mass., King Richard’s Faire announces its 34th season offering guests a full day of live, interactive entertainment for all ages. Guests will enjoy daring knights jousting on horseback and eight stages filled with song and dance, stunts and storytelling. Every Saturday afternoon, the King’s Stage offers themed contests and events to add variety to the festival-like entertainment lineup (see kingrichardsfaire.net for details).
There are two childrens’ special costume events- the Prince and Princess Promenade on 10/3 and the Fairies and Pirates Parade on 10/17.
Both are at 4p on the King’s Stage, first 50 to line up can parade on stage to show the audience their awesome costumes.
Seedling.com is donating the prizes and I can probably get my hands on a few to give away :-) Seedling activity kits are designed to help fuel young imaginations and open new paths to discovery. Young users are invited to use their own initiative at every stage of the activity – from the materials they’ll use to the ways they’ll play with it. Once they start, there’s no end to the possibilities.
One lucky Viola Cay reader can win four free tickets to King Richard’s Faire and a magical medieval activity kit from Seedling.com (total value around $160).
Guests can mingle with the King and his royal court, noble and not-so-noble subjects and skilled performers. When as famished as a mud beggar, enjoy the Faire’s delicious spit-roasted turkey legs, buttery ears of corn, boules filled with chowder and stew, ringlets of fries, and quench thirst with champagne, wine and brew. Shoppers can stroll through the 16th century village filled with the wares of more than 100 unique and talented artisans, including New England artists. At every turn, guests will encounter fantasy and wonder through minstrels, musicians, acrobats, stilt walkers, giant puppets, wenches, and more. Carvershire has been bustling with excitement as King Richard and Queen Anne welcome new entertainers and talented artisans to our enchanting village including:
the Great Cats of the World Show, Draiku, the amazing aerialist duo, Topsy Turvey, two beautiful acrobatic stunt mavens, Squire of the Wire, a comedy and juggling high wire act, and Princess Sing-Along, with our favorite trio of princesses!

We started the summer off with a bang! A trip to the Red Jacket Resort in Yarmouth, fireworks on the beach. Back home for a bit and swim lessons. Then to the cape again for the 4th and more fireworks on the bay!
This is the fifth year of the Yarmouth Summer Celebration Kick-Off, and they’ll have all of your favorite events from years past plus some new ones for even more fun. They will start it off with a bang with a spectacular Fireworks display and a busy weekend commemorating the new playground opening in Yarmouthport on Saturday, and a jam-packed day of beach activities on our first #SundayFunday!
Here’s the event schedule online. I’ll give you a snippet below. It looks like tons of fun with a lot of stuff to do for kids and families!
Sounds like a ton of fun right?? Well, Red Jacket Resorts would like a very special family to have a front row seat at their place for the Yarmouth Summer Celebration Kick off events :-) My family and I went to the Beach Resort in the Spring and just loved it. We can’t wait to experience it in all it’s glory – during a Cape Cod Summer!
We’ve had a long hard winter around these parts, haven’t we? Thinking about the beach, sand castles, the pool, nature walks, bbq, ice cream, s’mores, family, new friends, and most of all tired, dirty, happy kids. My favorite part about summer is just how happy they are to be running about on the beach with no cares except when there next sugar fox will be. Ahhhhhhhhh summer.
You can enter below. The winner will get to choose 2 nights accommodations at a Red Jacket Resorts on Cape Cod during the Yarmouth Summer Celebration, June 26th-July2nd, 2015. Accommodations available at Red Jacket Beach Resort, Blue Water Resort or Riviera Beach Resort. Sweet!!
